Re: Macro Lenses

Some members have used these with quite good results. The only one that I can remember at the moment is Foxwsbrew - check out his gallery and I'm sure there are some in there.

There have also been a couple of previous threads on this subject, if i can find them i'll post a link.

Re: Macro Lenses

I,ve used them and found them pretty good as long as you appreciate thier limitations. They are not macro in the true sense but are simply magnifying lenses. I do have a couple of macro lenses but I,ve kept my close-up kit as its sometimes useful. They are very cheap and I think a very good intro to close-up photography.
